Artesia, NM This Morning After Yesterday's Rainfall.

Thunderstorms erupted across the Southeastern New Mexico plains late yesterday afternoon and evening, some of these continued into the evening hours. Strong microburst wind gusts from these t-storms produced a peak wind gust at the Roswell, Airport of 52 mph, 50 mph at the Artesia Airport, and 47 mph at the Carlsbad Airport. Blowing dust reduced the visibility down to less than a mile between Roswell and Artesia and in Carlsbad. 

For many locations this was the first measurable rainfall since February, and the first significant rainfall since last September. Finally the rains have returned, which are a welcome change from the heat, blowing dust, grass fires, and extreme drought conditions.
